Dear NDP: Stop logging the old-growth you promised to protect

Last year, the BC NDP promised to defer old-growth logging after months of activism and campaigning from BC Greens and other organizations.

On Aug 30, a chilling report was released by Stand.Earth that found 55,000 hectares of the promised deferrals have already been logged or face imminent logging.

Add your name to remind the BC NDP of their promise and to push them to save the old-growth trees that are still standing.

I stand with British Columbians who think it’s time for the BC NDP to halt old-growth logging and create the space for solutions: 

  • Implement immediate interim protections in all remaining high-risk old-growth ecosystems 

  • Work in partnership with First Nations to create alternative economic opportunities
    • Provide conservation financing and funding for Indigenous-led protected areas in this year’s budget

  • Take back tenures (timber harvesting rights) from forestry companies with old-growth tenures 
  • Direct BC's own logging agency, BC Timber Sales, to stop selling off old-growth forests for logging
  • Stop using misleading numbers and terms for how much old-growth is protected and come clean with the public about the state of our ancient forests

  • Release a public implementation and work plan for when government will meet each of the Old-Growth Strategic Review Panel's recommendations
